Don't you wish Allen West was still in Congress?
Republicans must get tough and seize the nation's purse strings to successfully fight President Barack Obama's expected use of executive power to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, former Rep. Allen West says.
"The Republicans need to find their big boy pants. That's what they need to do," West, a Florida Republican and retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.
"You cannot let this go because you're talking about a fundamental demographic shift and an economic catastrophe for the U.S. right now and you're talking to the disrespect of our Constitution.
"The most important thing that can immediately be done between the House and the Senate in January 2015 is to not fund any of the agencies that are responsible for allowing illegal immigrants to get these work permits and not have to face deportations."
West said it is clear from the Constitution's Article I, Section 8 clause that the president does not have that enumerated power to grant amnesty.
"Congress are the only ones that can make rules of laws in matters of naturalization," he said.
"[Americans] don't support it, especially after what happened this summer when you had tens of thousands of illegals standing across the border and now they have been dispersed all over the country.
"The American people want to get back to work, they don't want to see all of a sudden an influx of illegals that they're going to be responsible for because they're going to get on the taxpayer's role for welfare benefits and things of that nature."
"We're coming off a beheading of an American and now we just had three Americans brutally killed, assaulted while they were praying in the synagogue in Jerusalem and that's a very calm response," West said.
The other thing is we continue to hear this classification of extremism. We don't say Islamic terrorism and we don't say jihadism.
"It's as if we're trying to wish this problem away and reclassify it in a means that is very comforting and accommodating to us."
West said the Obama administration is clueless as to the disturbing trend of the Palestinian culture to glorify the killing of Jews.
"We continue to see that coming out of the administration where they don't understand that [Palestinian Authority President] Mahmoud Abbas is the leader of a gang called Fatah," he said.
"Fatah originally comes from the Palestinian Liberation Organization of Yasser Arafat. They were the original terrorists. Abbas is going into a reconciliation tact agreement with Hamas."
On the sweeping Republican victories in Senate and House races across the country, West told Steve Malzberg:
"The midterm election was an initial indicator that the American people are starting to focus on policies. When the president said his policies were on the ballot, a lot of Americans started to think about how they're suffering," he said.

"They're not working full-time at jobs, their healthcare insurance premiums are going up, we see a lack of a strong resolve with the national security and we're decimating our military capability capacity.
"So the American people are saying we need to get this thing back on the right track. We got to be responsible in honoring our rule of law, the Constitution."

Should President Barack Obama go through with his plans to use executive action to unilaterally grant amnesty to illegal immigrants, he may be met with a slew of lawsuits from several Republican governors, who said Wednesday that such judicial action will be likely, The Huffington Post reported.

The Republican governors, who are all potential candidates for the 2016 Republican presidential ticket as well, spoke at the annual conference of the Republican Governors Association on Wednesday about the possibility of various states suing the president should he bypass Congress to provide deportation relief for five million illegal immigrants.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry said it is a "very real possibility" that Texas could sue the federal government if Obama acts unilaterally on immigration, according to the Huffington Post. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker also suggested that a lawsuit is in order, as did Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
Appearing on Sean Hannity's radio program Wednesday, Walker stated, "I think the Republicans in Washington need to take the president to court. They need to force this issue. I think it's bigger than the subject matter of immigration."
Earlier this week, another presidential hopeful, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, said that if Obama does go through with executive action, he believes the Supreme Court will inevitably step in.
"I think with regard to immigration reform, [the president] is doing something that Congress has not instructed him to do and in fact has instructed him otherwise, so I think the Supreme Court would strike it down," Paul told Fox News' Sean Hannity. "That takes a while, but that may be the only recourse short of a new president."
And last week, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, weighed various lawsuit options, and has considered expanding a proposed federal lawsuit over Obama's use of executive orders to include his action on immigration. Another option gaining traction would be to file a separate lawsuit, according to The Washington Post.
Other GOPers believe Obama's actions could reap something much worse than a lawsuit - impeachment or even prison time.
Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., one of the most outspoken immigration reform opponents, told Slate, "At some point, you have to evaluate whether the president's conduct aids or abets, encourages, or entices foreigners to unlawfully cross into the United States. That has a five-year in-jail penalty associated with it."
However, others argue, including some in the conservative legal group, the Federalist Society, that the president does in fact have the legal authority to unilaterally act on immigration, according to the Huffington Post.
"There is a difference between executing the law and making the law," said Christopher Schroeder, the Charles S. Murphy professor of law and public policy studies at Duke Law School, during the group's annual meeting last week. "But in the world in which we operate, that distinction is a lot more problematic than you would think. If the Congress has enacted a statute that grants discretionary authority for the administrative agency or the president to fill in the gaps, to write the regulations that actually make the statute operative, those regulations to all intents and purposes make the law."
"I agree this can make us very uncomfortable. I just don't see the argument for unconstitutionality at this juncture," he added.
